Rustica Unassembled Kit Door Guide

1. In some areas of the country we see more damage than acceptable when kits doors are shipped unassembled in a ground shipping box, so it is possible that a kit door may ship in a crate via a freight carrier so that your beautiful door arrives without damage.

2. If shipped put together in a crate the overlays will be left to be installed on site. We recommend that you attach them with pin nails, wood glue or (if neither of those are good options) you can use ½” wood screws (not included and not recommended).

3. Many Rustica door kits have the same options as the recommended Rustica assembled doors but are offered with a more economical price.

4. Door kits do not have a warranty against warping, separating or splitting.

5. It is possible that your kit door may come unassembled and need to be assembled using the 7 inch lag screws through the side of the stiles.

6. For both Kit and Assembled doors... the hardware (hangers, handles and pulls) are not installed and the doors are not pre-drilled which allows every installation the ability to make any unique changes needed.

Ceiling Mount Sliding Barn Door Track

5 Times to Use Ceiling Mount Barn Door Hardware 


Sometimes homeowners find themselves frustrated at the prospect of incorporating a sliding door into their home. Though the general design features might be a match, homeowners encounter some common technical issues while mapping out the installation process, like a lack of space to mount the track. Most often, the solution is easy: purchase ceiling mount sliding barn door track hardware.

5 Times to Use Ceiling Mount Barn Door Hardware 

  1. Room Dividers
  2. Limited Header Space
  3. Low Ceilings
  4. Crown Moulding
  5. Cabinets, Closets, and Pantries
If you’ve experienced any of the above issues in your barn door journey, do not despair! Ceiling mount barn door hardware can easily remedy these situations, allowing you to enjoy a beautiful sliding barn door in your home.

Can You Hang a Barn Door from the Ceiling?

Yes, it is absolutely possible to hang a barn door from a ceiling. Though traditionally barn doors are mounted to a wall’s beams or installed onto an attached header above the door opening, many homeowners choose to hang their door panel from the ceilings for a variety of reasons.
Homeowners who choose this option will need to purchase a specific type of barn door track called a ceiling mount system. The installation process is very similar a to header or wall mount. Most importantly, a homeowner needs to ensure that the ceiling mount is safely installed into the ceiling’s beams for support.

5 Times to Use Ceiling Mount Barn Door Hardware

There are many reasons a homeowner may choose to mount their barn door to the ceiling. Here are the five most common situations where ceiling mount barn door hardware comes in handy:

Room Dividers

Whether you’ve purchased a home with an open-floor plan that you wish weren’t so open, or you’ve decided to repurpose a section of your home, like turning a large basement into a play area and office combo, you’re going to have to find a way to divide up the space.

The more expensive option is to throw up some walls to permanently alter your home’s floor plan. The more economical (and more design-savvy) option may be to purchase a set of sliding barn doors. These barn doors will meet the practical needs of your home while also making a design statement.

Just because you don’t have any wall to install sliding track hardware doesn’t mean a barn door can’t divide your room. Instead, you can purchase a ceiling mount sliding barn door track system to safely hang your doors from your ceiling.

Limited Header Space

A barn door’s track system can either be mounted directly into the wall using the beams as an anchor or installed into a header above the door frame. Both choices require at least six inches of clearance above the door opening for the barn door hardware when using a standard door track system.

Some homeowners find their solution in a low clearance barn door track, which only requires a minimum of four inches. Still, some owners have even less header/wall space above their door opening. In this case, a ceiling mount is your best and only bet for installing a barn door within your space. This type of mounting hardware option eliminates the frustration of limited header space altogether.

Low Ceilings

“Limited header space” is a bit of a general term, so it’s important to highlight some of the main issues underneath this common problem.

Some homes, especially older homes or apartments, were built with fairly low ceilings in comparison to the nine-foot plus ceilings of many modern homes. Not only do these ceilings make some homeowners feel claustrophobic, but they can also rob a door of sufficient header space simply because there isn’t any height left to spare once.

If a standard door opening is six foot eight inches in height and your ceiling is seven feet tall, you’ve got a problem. This problem is also common in homes with pitched roofs. Most common in styles like Tudor, these pitched roofs slope on either side, limiting header space on some door openings. In both of these situations, a ceiling mount barn door is the perfect solution.

Crown Moulding

Sometimes design features are the culprit of limited header space, even though the original structure of a home does boast the necessary six inches. Crown moulding, a type of ceiling trim, is an extremely popular choice in traditional interior design. The moulding can be thin and unassuming at three inches or as bold and big as 20 inches in height. Considering this measurement, it’s easy to see how crown moulding could steal some of the necessary header height for a sliding barn panel. Here, barn door ceiling mount hardware can come to the rescue yet again!

Cabinets, Closets, and Pantries

Other types of interior doors are also perfect candidates for a barn door hardware ceiling mount. A pantry or closet door, wardrobe, or cabinet door are just a few examples to start.

Homeowners might consider installing top ceiling mount barn door hardware if their cabinet or pantry door stretches to the ceiling or if they don’t want to drill mounting holes into their cabinets. A closet or wardrobe piece might benefit from modern ceiling mount barn door hardware simply for design preferences or because it too encounters one of the above door opening issues. In any of these cases, the interior barn door issue can easily be resolved by choosing a sliding door track for ceiling mounts.

FAQ
What materials are the track and hangers made from?

The track and hangers are 100% steel, laser cut and bent (if needed) in our metal shop in Springville Utah.

What are the wheels made of?

The standard black wheels are made from a durable nylon that is long lasting and very quiet.

Some hardware styles offer 3" aluminum wheels, with a few variations and finish options.

The larger 4.5" wheels are aluminum and offer variations and finish options.

Is the track offered in standard lengths or do you cut it to size?

A few styles, including the same day shipping styles, offer fixed lengths of track, but the majority of the systems we offer allow you to cut to the inch.

How far off the wall does the track install?

Most of our hardware styles work with our patented adjustable spacers. We offer 3 sizes and the size shipped is determined by the thickness of the door. The adjustable spacers and optional heavy duty spacers allow a wide range or distance from the wall and as close as 3/8" depending on the width of the door and the size of the spacer.

Why would I want adjustable stops?

Typically the standard stops are all that is needed, especially if you order the track to the exact length that you need. However, sometimes there are unique installations that benefit from an adjustable stop which can be placed virtually anywhere on the track.
